Unfortunately, I think my domain admin passwork may have leaked to someone in the company. I know how to view the authentication records via event log, but am wondering how I can make it easier on myself to know if and when this is occuring. Is there an opensource app that can help? Or an easy way to generate automatic reports as a trigger when Admin account is used? Expert advice appreciated thank you

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It’s not open source but it’s free and works on Windows and integrates nicely with Active Directory. You may want to look at ManageEngine’s ADManager product.

I would suggest the first thing you do if you think your domain admin pw is compromised is to immediately change it and only give out the new one to those who should have it. That is just good business practice.

This is my normal practice yes, unfortunately i am required to keep it logged in a company file that I’m not always privy to who has access, in case something were to happen to me…

Thanks for the link I will test this out…
